Abstract:     
Famously dismissed by Roscoe Pound as useless antiquarianism, American colonial law has received increasing attention from scholars in recent years. This essay chronicles the rise of American colonial legal history as a field of study. The essay applauds this development, but recommends that the field remember its roots in intellectual history of the sort practiced by several giants of the past.
